The People Have Spoken, and Boaty McBoatface is in… Almost.

The NERC (Natural Environment Research Council) finally closed the poles to name their 300 million dollar research vessel. The land slide winner, Boaty McBoatface, beat the runner up, RRS Poppy-Mai with 124,109 Votes. (Poppy-Mai sat with less than 4 times the votes)

Although final say rests with Chief Executive of The NERC, Duncan Wingham, he faces the tough task of giving the people what they’ve asked for or maintain credibility with his very expensive ship.
